Hearing protection is of upmost importance for shooters whether on the range or in the field. Spika produce an excellent range of “Slimline” earmuffs that are lightweight, fully adjustable and of collapsible design. In addition to a basic model, Spika also produce an electronic designed unit with variable, 8 x amplification which is designed to automatically shut out unwanted noise like a gun shot over 85db. This is achieved via an adjustable dial located on the earmuffs.
Most hunters will argue that wearing hearing protection in the field won’t allow them to hear what’s going on in their surrounds, but with Spika’s electronic, adjustable audio, you can actually amplify audio, yet cut out unwanted noise at the shot. If you are hard of hearing like I am due to the lack of hearing protection over years of shooting, these electronic earmuffs will no doubt enhance what you hear, while protecting your ears from further damage. Spika electronic earmuffs come complete with batteries and ready to use.
Both the standard and electronic models come in the choice of pink or black with the familiar Spika logo on them and retail for approximately RRP$30.00 – Standard model and RRP$85.00 Electronic model.
